Ayden update

Ayden had a family that was interested in meeting him so the humans took him over to meet them at the Golden Retriever Rescue offices Saturday afternoon. Our human was scheduled to appear in his red and white suit at an event on Saturday and again Sunday, so he could not wait to see the outcome of the meeting with Ayden and his possible adopters.

Ayden's meeting did not go as well as we had hoped for. The prospective family had a small dog that was terrified by the energetic, bouncy Adyden. Ayden had to spend the night in the kennels, alone, rejected by his first family. We feel very bad for him and we hope we can bring him back if someone does not adopt him soon.

The kennels are getting crowded as we near the holidays. We will receive a new foster in just a little while. Snickers is a voluntary surrender by a human that just did not have time for a sweet Golden. We will post more information as soon as we know it. We have not met her, she is at the groomers getting cleaned up and ready to meet her Forever Home. She needed grooming badly, the human that surrendered Snickers not only did not have time for her, they did not have time to even keep her clean or brushed. Snickers was locked out of the house all day when they were gone, and locked in the bathroom at night. She had only a few hours a day of human contact, she was getting very lonely and almost no exercise. It is best that we find her a new home and we hope we can find her one by Christmas day.

Keep reading, I will tell you all about our new Foster Friend and her search for a Forever Home.

  1. Gosh Mogley,
    We really feel bad about Ayden being back in the kennels. We thought he'd at least be sharing Christmas with you guys; what a bummer. Little foo foo dogs are just too high strung most of the time. I guess this won't be a very Merry Christmas for Ayden or Snickers being in the kennels. We'll be saying special Christmas prayers for the homeless souls and we'll pay special attention to Ayden and Snickers. You have a safe holiday celebration. Don't you and Bella be over doing it on goodies.
